Still space in this Saturday's Weaving Workshop in Taos, New Mexico.

At the shop you can see some of her large scale fiber work which also has been hand & machine embroidered, needle felted and more.  She's one amazing fiber artist. 

Merce Mitchell's Vortex Yarns has some amazing selection of fibers on offer for sale.  
This is one of the reasons I just had to do a workshop here.  
Check them out. 

While I will provide white wool roving for the workshop, there is a lot of luscious hand dyed wool roving which you can buy in small amounts as needed. 

Once you used wool roving in your weaving it'll be hard to resist working with it again and again.  I love white roving for puffy white clouds for its wonderful dreamy quality.  How about cotton candy, cherry blossoms, flowering trees in the springtime and more.  so much more

Taos Wool Festival and any other wool festival events have vendors who raise the lovely creatures who produces these lovely fibers.  Its not often I have found a yarn shop that has this amount of wool roving available. 

Some Special fibers hand dyed and spin by Vortex Yarn owner Merce Mitchell!

An amazing and talented fiber artist herself.  You can find her work here.

You will receive with workshop 6 hours of hands on instruction and one-on-one attention, a frame loom, warp thread supply, yarn, tapestry needle and a dowel to attach weaving to create your very own woven wall hanging for your home.  

Hope to see you this Saturday for an awesome Saturday FUNDAY with creativity run amok
